Distinctive Ranking Evaluates Colleges Based on What They are Doing for the Country

Among Masters Degree colleges in the United States, The Evergreen State College came in 29th in the nation according to Washington Monthly’s ranking.

Evergreen ranks high on the Washington Monthly list, a ranking which, according to its editors, asks, “what are colleges doing for the country?”

Washington Monthly rankings are based on social mobility, which gives Evergreen credit for enrolling low-income students and helping them gain a degree; research production, particularly at schools like Evergreen that have a history of success in moving students on to PhDs., and commitment to service such as indicated by levels of campus participation in ROTC or the Peace Corps.

The Washington Monthly Ranking comes immediately on the heels of accolades by Sierra Magazine, The Fisk Guide to Colleges, and Princeton Review, recognizing the college for academic rigor, value and environmental ethics and innovation.
